Pro-Gillum Group Inspiring Voters With ‘Race-Baiting’ Msg

A group referring to itself as “Black Voters Matter” is using “race-baiting techniques” as a means to get out the vote for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, Florida’s Democratic gubernatorial nominee, and Florida State Rep. Sean Shaw, the state’s Democratic nominee for state attorney general.

Steve Stewart of Tallahassee Reports noted that he had “recovered a text message sent to a potential Florida voter from a Black Voter Matters volunteer” which refers to voting for Gillum as a way to “end Jim Crow FL!” The text read, “This is the most important election in the history of Black communities in FL… We could end Jim Crow FL!”

Gillum faces Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis in next month’s general election.
